Alexa Now Controls Fire TV

Read Here

 

“Amazon is expanding Alexa’s voice control capabilities to command what you watch on TV. Following Alexa’s newly released skill that lets you control Dish Hopper receivers, Amazon has now added Alexa voice control of Fire TV players, Fire TV Sticks, and Fire TV Edition smart TVs. While control of Fire TV media players and Sticks is limited to search and playback, control of Fire Edition TVs is more extensive and useful. Alexa users will still need to use their Fire TV remote controls for now. Nonetheless, it’s Amazon’s first step toward a future where Alexa can completely control our home theaters.”

Arcam rPlay Network Streamer Review

Read Here

 

“The only real wrinkle in this otherwise deeply impressive roster of talents comes from the streaming service implementation. As noted, the app integration is good – very good in fact. Sonically, the results are a little more mixed. Listening to Tidal via the rPlay is not as convincing a prospect as it should be. Listening to an album on Tidal versus a 16/44.1 rip on both the resident Naim ND5XS and the rather more sympathetically priced Musaic MPL gives a performance that if you forensically sit and pull it apart, you can probably have a fighting chance of identifying correctly. The Arcam for reasons I don’t fully understand, sounds thinner and less at ease via Tidal than it does playing a rip – even if the connection is also made wirelessly. I don’t know why this is the case but if you’re a heavy Tidal user it might be worth taking this into account. It’s also worth noting that Spotify seems to be unaffected.”
